They sometimes have brownies that I swear must be made out of something really high on the periodic table...you need two hands to lift them.  Those are like $4 or so. 
In protest, go to Max's and get a potato knish. One of those will fill you up for a day, and it was only $5 last year. And, if the game really stinks, it is much easier to throw from the 3d deck than a hot dog.

I'll make a guess that they don't have butter in them.  With the meat they serve, there's probably no dairy at the place.  Somebody might know better if they can sell something wrapped and prepared remotely with dairy as long as it doesn't come in contact with the meat products.

When is this coming to Nats Park? I’ve got CLEAR and this would be a game changer.

I thought it was there last year at the CF gate. I never enter that side of the park.

A page on the Nats' site (https://www.mlb.com/nationals/sponsorship/clear) says "CLEAR is launching at Nationals Park for MLB All-Star Week," though presumably that was for last year. Who knows. There's a ton of outdated, inaccurate information throughout their website. It looks like maybe it was being used only during All-Star Week. Maybe as a pilot program.

It was a one time only thing for the All Star game.

I saw a post on Reddit saying that they eliminated straws at the park and are now using these lids:

(Image removed from quote.)

It's true. My buddy and I typically stop at the bullpen before the game and grab a couple drinks. He makes sure to grab one of the big slushy style straws from there to bring into the park so he can mix the bourbon into his coke. I just drink mine on the rocks so I buy one at the game and keep going back for more ice. My 1 liter plastic flask doesn't stop serving in the 7th either.  :D

Anyone been to Mission - Navy Yard across from the Park?

I've been there a few times. It's a nice space and a good place to grab a drink, but the food was very disappointing.

If this is the same thing as Mission BBQ then it's very marginal.  I've been to the restaurant in Fairfax and it was sub-par.

Prices are up, product quality is down.

The real drop could be next year. I signed a two year deal to get the price lock before last season, big mistake. I'm counting the days until I can opt out for next year. I'd like to see a 25% price drop and a ticket exchange similar to the Wizards.

Random info, because I asked and no one knew. For those of you that drink bourbon on the rocks, you CAN bring your Yeti lowball into the park.

I saw a woman walk up to the bar with one, but she was very good looking, so I figured she just picked out a male security guy and was able to bring it in.

He wouldn't consider himself successful unless she left her post to go with him.

I am pretty good at picking up chicks. Literally, you just have to pick them up. It’s that easy.
